Handmade Custom Violins
We make violins ranging in price points from $3,500 to $15,000
Pricing is based on the performance of the violin and the quality of the wood.
These suit the player who wants to accelerate their progress with better sound & better response.
We can either setup your violin or setup a new custom violin to your requirements.
Custom bridges made to your requirements
Custom string heights
Custom string lengths to suit players with bigger or smaller hands
Custom width between strings
Every luthier/violin maker has their own method of placement of the sound post.
Alex Grant and Volker both setup soundposts completely differently.
We can offer the customer soundpost adjustment live so the sound can be trailed by the player.
Wittner Geared Pegs
We retro fit Wittner geared pegs
These pegs are gaining popularity due to the extra fine tuning ability of these pegs and not as temperamental as stock violin pegs
“I can not express how happy that I have been with both the service and the product. Paul has shown exceptional service and support and made buying a new violin an exciting experience. I was looking for a new professional violin. I had tried many different violins. I was drawn to a few Italian violins made in the early 20th century. When I had played on Paul’s Violin, It had more projection, clarity and fuller sound. It made the choice a no brainer! Paul has put in a lot of effort and love into his violins and the sound is just incredible for the price. I would recommend Paul Sorensen Violins for anyone looking for an exceptional violin. "
"The first violin sounded like a Mercedes Benz. This one sounds like a Ferrari with a subwoofer. I am of course exaggerating and being creative in this interpretation."

“I now have 3 violins of Sorensen. All equally unique and very playable. Two teaching violins and a soloist instrument that I can’t wait to play every time I practise. It’s quality matches what I think would be up with the best played by world class soloists.
The teaching violins have extremely clear action and beauty of sound. The soloist instrument is no less than magical in response and sound.”
(Marianne is a professional violinist who also teaches)
"A fantastic, quick, friendly and easy communication with a beautiful range of high quality handmade violins. I can't recommend Paul enough. He played the violin for me on a video chat and took the time to advise me and to answer all of my questions. A fantastic small local business which is so hard to come by these days. Thank you so much Paul "
